Trivia Question: Which Texas city is located in the Mountain Time Zone?

Sugar Land
Waco
Amarillo
El Paso

Most of Texas is located in the Central Time Zone, but its two westernmost counties, El Paso and Hudspeth, have been operating in the Mountain Time Zone since 1970. In 1921, the Secretary of Transportation placed all of Texas, including El Paso, in the Central Time Zone. However, the city ignored the legislation and continued to unofficially operate on Mountain Time for nearly 50 years before legally making the change.

The Answer: The correct answer is El Paso.
